I think this was as good as it could probably get for a day trip. I don't think you could get any more into the day, and if you could, it probably wouldn't give you any more value.
We got views and history of Como the lake from several vantage points, and also of Como the city. Views of the city and lake from 500metres above, and way, WAY, into the distance, and also views and local stories from an hour-long ferry ride on the lake itself, with enough time to do a little exploration of our own.
Yes, we saw where George lives, when he's there. No, I didn't get the chance to ask him where the best coffee was served in Como.
However, the coach ride was comfortable, warm and swift enough... I don't know what more you could ask for, really.... ?
